Associate Investor Membership

Get Started Through Our Associate Investor Membership Program

The Associate Investor Membership Program is affordably designed for foundations and donors who would like to learn more about mission-related investing and are interested in collecting resources, getting information, and meeting others.

Why Join The Associate Investor Member Program?

Many foundations and individual donors are most comfortable taking a set-by-step approach as they begin to learn about  mission-related investing. Confluence has created the Basic Membership Program as a means for new members to familiarize themselves with the practice by taking part in the unique community and learning opportunities that we offer.

Each year Confluence organizes more than 20 educational events through monthly webinars, thematic roundtable discussions, learning tours, and our three-day Annual Practitioners’ Meeting. Roundtable discussions are organized by members regionally, while learning tours are led domestically and internationally. Please visit our homepage for a listing of upcoming events.

By joining Confluence Philanthropy, you and your institution gain access to a community of like-minded grantmakers who are together learning how to practice mission-related investing.

Associate Investor Membership Program Goals

  • To build a peer-to-peer network of donors and grantmakers in mission-related investing
  • To increase the capacity of Confluence Basic Members through individualized support, learning, and peer-to-peer networking
  • To accelerate the field of mission-related investing by encouraging systemic thinking, effective partnerships, and innovation within philanthropy

Associate Investor Members may participate in all Confluence events, with the exception of the Annual Practitioners’ Meeting. Basic Members are welcome to attend the Annual Practitioners’ Meeting once, and are then encouraged to join the Practitioners’ Program in order to be able to attend the Meeting in subsequent years.
